[audio]The Sound of Young America: Pre-Podcasting Miscellany - Jesse Thorn and Maximum Fun
Please enjoy these past Sound of Young America interviews and comedy bits with my compliments. All of these were featured audio on our website in the realaudio era, and at some point were transcoded to MP3. Audio quality isn't perfect, due to the transcode, but it's certainly listenable. All these were recorded in 2004 or earlier on The Sound of Young America, before podcasting was even a glimmer in Adam Curry's eye...
